Principal's Message:

Happy first day of Autumn! Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who joined us for Movie Night and the 8th Grade Cookout. It was great to see so many students and their families at both events. We are looking forward to seeing many of you at this week's ADCA General Meeting on Wednesday and at the 7th Grade Cookout on Saturday.

This Week at Deal

This is going to be an especially exciting week for our 6th graders. Each 6th grade team will participate in a field trip to Hemlock Overlook. Deal students have participated in this annual team building opportunity for over 20 years. We are so appreciative that our ADCA continues to financially support this opportunity for our students to solve real-life challenges in the outdoors. The 6th Grade trip to Hemlock is by far one of our students' favorite Deal memories.   This week, we will host a screening of Circus Without Borders for our 6th graders. The director and one of the film's subjects, circus performer Yamoussa Banfoura, will be at Deal during the activity period on Wednesday. The film follows two circus performers - one who works with the Inuit Community in the Canadian Arctic and one who works in Guinea - who use circus to combat growing apathy and depression amongst teens: https://vimeo.com/124206024. Thank you to Deal art teacher, Ms. Kouri, for providing this great opportunity for our students. 

Onward and Upward!

Principal's Message:

Thank you to all of the families who joined us for Back to School Night. We are so grateful for your participation in our community. The Deal staff works extremely hard every day to provide our students with rigorous and engaging instruction, and appreciates your commitment to our partnership in education. 

The International Baccalaureate Programme @ Deal

The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. We have been an IB World School for eleven years, and are undergoing our second evaluation visit on September 20 and 21. At Deal, every student participates in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. As an IB-MYP school, we strive to ensure that every student embodies the IB Mission:

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme Evaluation Visit

During the evaluation visit, administrators, teachers/staff, students and parents will participate in formal interviews. The visit will also include classroom observations, a tour of the school facilities, and a review of presentations and student work.

Our students are creative and thoughtful young people. By participating in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme at Deal, we hope to inspire them to think globally, listen compassionately, and act inclusively.

Deal Movie Night

I am looking forward to seeing everyone this Friday at 6:30 pm for our Annual Movie Night. We will be showing Ready Player One. This free event is open to all members of the Deal Community. See you there!

Onward and Upward!
